Asclepias, Butterfly Weed

Prolific bloomer from June to August.

Customer Favorite!

An excellent choice for its vividly orange blooms, these easy-to-grow, long blooming natives make lovely cut flowers and are magnets for butterflies, particularly Monarchs. Crown-shaped flowers form clusters up to 2" across. In the fall, upright pods crack open, releasing seeds glistening with silky hairs. Perfect in meadows, wildflower gardens and as dried pods in arrangements. Sow outdoors in spring after last frost or in late summer.
